Lawmaker Kate Owoko Explains Why She Built Zinc Floating Toilet


Floating Toilet Initiator has explained why she did it...




Bayelsa state House of Assembly member, Kate Owoko, two days ago, came under heavy criticism after photos of a zinc floating toilet which she built and commissioned, for members of her constituency in Okori Ama and Oweidei Ama community in Amassoma LGA, Southern Ijaw constituency of the state, surfaced online.



Some cross sections of Nigerians felt that this isn’t the kind of project lawmakers should be commissioning for members of their constituency in 2017. She was blasted and dragged on social media.

Kate has, however, come out to defend her project. In a statement she released via her social media handle, Kate said the women in her community demanded for the floating toilet, saying that it was their most pressing need.

The statement released by her media team reads, “In line with widespread rumors on the ‘floating toilets’ provided for the women of Okori-Ama and Oweidei-Ama of Amassoma. These were the pressing (immediate) need from these women at the time. Due to the terrain of these said compounds, they were in grave need for such toilets to answer to the ‘call-of-nature’.

Prior to today these women hard to expose themselves to unsanitary conditions. Hence, requested particularly for such toilets from their representative. Hon Kate Owoko ‘personally’ saw to the actualization of this pressing demands from her constituents. This should be in no way mistaken for a constituency project which is her primary duty to her people. We are all aware that Her constituency project is on Education and it is ongoing”.

This law maker & image makers are officially shameless

Cherry topaz said...

Look at her looking "neckless" like a big fat pig after feeding fat from the money meant for the development of her constituency. Nothing justifies giving the people this death trap as a project. I don't blame you, I blame illiteracy and poverty. Look at the rejoicing and jubilating. They don't know that they're prone to epidemics,tueh. Abeg make I go finish the report wey dey my table. I'm so pissed.

SANDY YO said...

Akuko! SMH!!!

IJAY said...

So the women she built it for don't have any other pressing issues, hmmmm this government shaii

doctor samba said...

I have always said that the worst form of poverty is that of the mind....

Rhoda Rex said...

Lol... Just imagine.

Rhoda Rex said...

Nor mind her. See her face. 😑

Broomstick said...

What you're saying is that she was thin and looking sickly but thanks to the monies she's been stealing, she's now a "neckless, big, fat pig"? And you're female. Rather than concentrating on the problem, you just had to body-shame her too abi? Well done o. Assistant creator of human beings

Shyla said...

Did she have to wear thay necklace on top that blouse? Smh. And see the woman dancing like sey they don win raffle. Instead of builing a solid toilet na zinc material e come build. If you ask those women now, they will deny they asked for this.

This is arrant nonsense

Stella Amassoma is not a Local government area,it's a very big town.Okoriama and oweideiama are compounds in amassoma which are refered to as communities.Amassoma is in southern Ijaw LGA.

about the floating latrine;The law maker should have just remained mute,her explanation does not justify the fact that she flopped big time.
fine,it might be what the people wanted at the time.couldn't she have made it look finer,why not bricks instead of zinc...bricks makes it look unique,expensive and neat. floating toilets likes this are found in almost every compound in my Village,including my father's .but they are built with bricks(by individuals,and not government officials).I prefer using it when we visit the village for Christmas.even though there are modern toilets in the house.

She's so proud of herself even her posture says so. See how she boldly attached her name to the pan toilet. But still on still, pan toilet is better than no toilet.

The General's Wife said...

More pissed than you.

It's bad enough she did that but coming to justify and explain it lefte speechless.

Kai!
This is another reminder that We stil have a long way to go!

The General's Wife said...

Akuko no be small.

Shocked at her explanation.

Minnie Rexpect said...

She's got no atom of shame. She even has the guts to come explain such nonsense.

Spanish Lantern said...

Its right behind the gullible women dancing.

Spanish Lantern said...

This is the height of madness. Just tell the truth and shame the devil. You calculated the cost of digging a bore hole and you said to hell with them, they are just old women. Even if they asked for this rubbish couldn't you have done better? Is that not why they put you there, to show them the light? You should be arrested.

Peachy said...

Okokobioko....mbe agaba...ajambele. *speechless

Jeni_zee said...

How does the inside of the toilet look like? I have not seen a floating toilet before

jelly said...

She should have put bricks to look beautiful

Cherry topaz said...

Before you talk of corruption, you see poverty, illiteracy, religion and some traditions ehn, they are huge setbacks against the development of this great nation. For her to hand this to human beings like her as a project shows the kind of person she is. I FEEL LIKE USING MUDDY HANDS SOAKED WITH CRUDE OIL TO RUB ALL OVER THAT HER FACE 😑😑

Cherry topaz said...

I SAID WHAT I SAID!! I'm female and So fucking what?! It's my opinion. Don't let the devil use you this morning ok? You don't want to go there with me my dear, you just don't! Keep calm and drink Apple cider vinegar.
